the HUMANSOFT story
Our commitment and passion for quality education has been the trademark of HUMANSOFT for more than 20 years. This unshakeable belief in our mission is the reason why we have achieved success and stayed true to our values in the face of many challenges. And believe us, we have met our share.
We started HUMANSOFT back in 1994. Then we were known as New Horizons a modest computer training center tucked away in a small office in Kuwait City. Just as the IT revolution was building up, our ‘little’ company took off and within a matter of 5 years we were able to expand into the UAE and Qatar. This tremendous development grabbed global attention and industry recognition as New Horizons was successfully providing training diplomas to hundreds of thousands of people in the GCC region.
Soon we spotted the need for our learners to make the next step in their development not only to improve their software and hardware IT knowledge but to add professional workplace and English language skills. This prompted us to establish HUMANSOFT to incorporate all our educational initiatives. In doing so, we ambitiously invested in e-learning as early as 2003 with Net G, one of the largest e-learning providers.
We customized a wide range of e-learning programs and products to match the growing demands of our learners throughout the Middle East as well as Morocco, Algeria, Egypt, Lebanon. To ensure the success of our projects, we created the necessary distribution and support networks. However, this was not the end to our passion and commitment to education and academic endeavour.
In the early 2000s, we began our dream-project to nurture a home-grown university in Kuwait that would cater for our youth’s academic needs. We set out to build a higher education institution that would meet the rigorous local regulatory requirements. Thus, the American University of the Middle East (AUM) and the American College of the Middle East (ACM) came into existence, in affiliation with the prestigious Purdue University (USA). After a dedicated focus , research and commitment of resources AUM and ACM operated first batch in the academic year 2008-09 out of its campus at Egaila .
In the meantime, the HUMANSOFT team wrote another notable chapter in its story by being listed on the Kuwait Stock Exchange in 2005 as a company focused on the field of Knowledge Transfer and Learning in the Middle East.
Today, our dedication to excellence in higher level education and vocational training is as strong as ever. And it is there for all to see both on our AUM and ACM campus and throughout our longstanding network of training centers. Year on year, we offer a greater range of qualifications designed to meet the demands of the 21st century workplace. As a result, our student population grows rapidly, attracting local, regional and international interests.
